No need to be embarrassed. Elton was the perfect segue to the GD for me. Lots of similarities...Smoking band...great lyrics...male harmonies. The thing that Elton had was Gus Dudgeon, who produced those early-mid 70's albums, which led to his huge popular success.

Don't forget Paul Buckmaster - the orchestral rock of "Madman" and "Don't Shoot Me" has never been matched. You're right on about the band. I saw him on the TV just a few weeks ago, a show at the Royal Academy, and there were Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olson, almost 40 years later, still rocking along with old Elton.

That was awesome! Thanks. I obviously need to find myself an Elton board.
